    What happened to Ga? I just moved from there after 25 years there and we always had tax-free shopping weekend for back to school savings. I love it!

        I was going to say that too! I got such a great deal on diapers at our local grocery store and then remembered that I got them tax free too!! Bonus! ๐Ÿ˜€ $58.00 worth of diapers and I got them for $24.00! That’s about 10cents a diaper and that’s about the best I can do around here. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here in Round Rock Texas we have 3 bowling lanes particapating in the Free Game of Bowling. I even called to confirm & the manager was unaware of it & went to the website while he was on the phone with me. He said they would honor it after seeing they were one of the locations on the site. Thank you Collin for sharing this. We were planning to go bowling as a family tomorrow & now it’s going to be even better because we will be saving some money.

    Don’t forget, it is Sam’s no membership needed weekend. Shop without a membership, and after examining all the fine print, there seems to be no charge at all. Unlike other times when they add 10% to your order, or something crazy like that. I don’t think a membership is worth it for my family, but I do like to get a few things there. Great weekend to stock up!

    My 22 month old daughter and I went to Borders and got her Glitter Ball just a little while ago and she loves it!! We got the big one and it retails for $4.99! She had been eyeing them a few weeks ago, so very worth the ink in my printer.
